Some of my favorite tools to replenish and re-seed the gut are available at your fingertips. Give yourself the gift of realizing the full potential of your gut microbiome by reseeding what has been lost over the last decade or over your lifetime from antibiotics, formula/C-section, poor high sugar/refined food diets and low prebiotic diets!

Buy the kit including BIFIDO|MAXIMUS and Equilibrium, then get one bottle of the paleo supplement company Arthur Andrew Medical’s Floraphage as a complimentary gift. This is a great way to start the year and begin your GI tract journey!  These probiotics and prebiotics help to buffer against the ravages of modern living, stress, gluten/dairy and other gut disrupting factors. The combination is the key because the synergy within the ecosystem power and regulate our unique and special human immune system which is 80-90% housed in the intestines.

This combination does everything but clean your windows! B|M supports optimal gut health, reduction of pathogens, resurrection of vital gut guardians, degradation of toxins (gluten, casein, mycotoxins) and downregulates irritated mast cells from dumping histamine and other internal allergens (oxalates).
    • Equilibrium Contains 1 Billion CFU from 115 strains of ancestral strains.  It is also shelf stable, no refrigeration required, has a delayed release capsules for proper delivery and a small, easy to swallow capsule. Equilibrium a rain-forest of environmental microbes including beneficial Eubacteria, Enterobacter, and over 115 diverse strains which support revitalization of damaged flora, irritable bowel syndrome, dysbiosis and digestion of gluten/dairy and mycotoxins. The company General Biotics has internal studies showing a correlation of improved happiness and mood with Equilibrium. The Gut Institute also has countless stories of sustained optimism, improved mood, reports of ‘suddenly I am feel so happy’ with use of Equilibrium and BIFIDO|MAXIMUS in less than 2-4 weeks.
    • Complimentary Floraphage Contains phages which targets toxic E coli pathogens commonly found in the gut after gut damage such as stress, antibiotics and acid-blockers. Floraphage are also prebiotics which are fuel and food for beneficial flora such as Bifidobacteria and other gut guardians. Adds amplification of BIFIDO|MAXIMUS Probiotic growth by an estimated 50X fold. Floraphage is a cocktail of 4 naturally occurring, beneficial phages which help support elimination of pathogenic E. coli (Gamma Proteobacteria). Phages are found naturally everywhere in nature, our food and water.

 

Read more about the importance of your microbiome at Enviromedica. “Newly Extinct Gut Flora! 3 Forgotten ‘Nutrients’” a short piece I wrote about my gratitude for the gut and about Bifidobacteria longum, LactobacilliBacteroides and other absent and missing gut strains which protect our longevity, leanness and overall health. [Look forward to an upgraded and amazing new Prescript Assist formula soon too!]

What Are Foundational Flora for Humans?

The foundational flora form the ‘brakes’ on pathogen invasion which inevitably each animal, insect or fish on Earth encounters in daily living. Opportunistic members attempt to colonize our mucosal membranes and intestinal tract, attempting to gain entry and cause disease. Imagine your Tesla or Prius was missing ¼ or ⅓ of the braking system. How would you fare driving down a curvy hill or on a busy street? If your brakes were broken, you would certainly get them fixed in a hurry. The same care should be taken for your foundational flora.

Unlike environmental or soil microbiomes which have 60-70 different phyla of bacteria, over 95% of the healthy human microbiota is composed of only 3 selective, human specialist phyla: Bacteroidetes, Firmicutes, and Actinobacteria. Actinobacteria are generally the lowest percent in the gut and Bacteroidetes and Firmicutes share a split of about 40/60 to 20/80. Studies that compare healthy human subjects with disease-bearing subjects provide the best clues to the composition of the foundational flora in humans.8, 9 In 2009, Julien Tap and his colleagues produced one of the best summaries of the intestinal phylogenetic core microbiota by studying the flora in 17 healthy omnivores and vegetarians from France and Netherlands. 66 dominant strains were found to be in the core of nearly all healthy microbiotas. The eight most prevalent species groupings (OTUs) were: Faecalibacterium prausnitzii, Bacteroides vulgatus, Roseburia intestinalis, Ruminococcus bromii, Eubacterium rectale, Coprobacillus, Alistipes putredinis, and Bifidobacterium longum.

Bacteroidetes

Bacteroidetes has several main classes of Gram negative bacteria including the largest, Bacteroides, which ferment an enormous repertoire of complex plant fiber, carbohydrates, oligosaccharides and polysaccharides of both food and mucus side chains. They are commonly found in animals, environment, oceans, and soil. Predominantly Bacteroidetes are disease protective. Bacteroides is found low or depleted in nearly all the diseases of Western civilization.

Actinobacteria

Actinobacteria contains Gram positive Bifidobacteria, environmental and some skin related flora. This grouping experiences the greatest disruption after Cesarean section surgery. Instead of being blanketed with Mother’s Bifidobacterium and Bacteroides after vaginal birth, the gut microbiota of C section babies are colonized by Corynebacterium and Propionibacterium (from Actinobacteria) from sources such as skin flora of health care workers, hospital surfaces and mom and dad’s skin.10 Staphylococcus and Clostridium difficilehitchhike their way into baby too.

  • Kelsey

    So how does this work? It doesn’t show up in the cart.

    • DrGracePharmD-Gut_Goddess

      No it is auto upon fulfillment if PA and B|M are both ordered together in same cart…

      • Kelsey

        @Grace thx!

        • DrGracePharmD-Gut_Goddess

          Welcome and I am looking forward to hearing how B|M massacres the pathogens/yeasts and rehabs your gut!

  • Kelsey

    So how does this work? It doesn’t show up in the cart.

  • Kelsey

    Grace?
    What diagnostic tests do you recommend these days?

    • DrGracePharmD-Gut_Goddess

      HI Kelsey,

      We order the necessary tests for each unique person and insurance/cash — immune function (antibodies), gut/urine testings, sometimes uBiome, 23andme, etc

  • Charles Curran

    Hi Grace, I just ordered both together and as far as I can tell got charged for both.

    • DrGracePharmD-Gut_Goddess

      HI Charles

      Thank you so much for your order. Did you order the Prescript Assist?

  • Samantha Rodes

    Back again Grace (samantha here). Bifido Max is indeed a powerful probiotic- I take the 100 Billion Scoop usually, but 2-3X a week I double it to 200 billion, before bed. I also believe that 1 TBS of Clear Fiber (acacia), the probiotic, magnesium (blend of citrate and elemental/ oxide) keep things regular, as well as taking LivAmend, a Body Ecology liver supporting supplement (taken early in the morning, sometimes in the afternoon too). So for my n=1 experiment, I’ve noted that prebiotic fiber+high dose probiotics+ magnesium+ liver support seem to help tremendously outside of diet, exercise, and stress management. Ideally, I’d like to take a high dose serving of probiotics 3-4X a week, and add in a Soil Based probiotic in between. I have a love- hate relationship with Prescript Assist, and despise AOR. I’ve tried MegaSpore, but detect little effects. I might give it a try again though. I’d really like to know which strains specifically address constipation on the SBO world- bacillus coagulans comes up a lot in whatever I can scrap up. Any thoughts on everything above? Thanks!

    • DrGracePharmD-Gut_Goddess

      Yes I kinda love-hate the AOR (too much Enterococcus which is analogous to Streptococcus which EVERYONE has issues with secondary to long standing subclinical dysbiosis). lol Welcome to my world.

      Have you considered a functional medicine consult from me or other gut advocates?

      • Samantha Rodes

        I’ve considered it. Money is tight (to pay for the probiotics/sups is already a stretch). I so, SO want to. NONE of the doctors in my area know what they’re talking about (either they want to sell me a candida herbal detox- been there, done all that- or have me take metamucil/over the counter laxatives FOR LIFE).

  • Robert Purkiewicz

    The high percentage of longum is to promote leanness?

    • DrGracePharmD-Gut_Goddess

      Bifidobacteria longum is one of the most gut mucosa protective strains and it is lost from antibiotics or other things that damage and reduce gut diversity (sugar, low fiber diets, potato starch, stress, etc)

  • Marge

    I suppose this offer is no longer valid? I’ve been maxing out on probiotics for the past year, and realized I’ve done nothing but put weight on. So I want to return to what I was taking prior to this, including Prescript Assist. I thought I’d take a look at the other products, but having difficulty finding anything in the store.

    • DrGracePharmD-Gut_Goddess

      Marge ~ This will likely be ongoing

  • Carol

    I placed an order in February and haven’t received it yet. Is there a way to find out if there is a problem? R

    • Mike Robins

      Hi Carol- did you ever receive it? i am holding off on ordering cause no one ever answers my emails.

      • Carol

        Hi Mike, yes I did receive the order. They even added some extra stuff to make up for the error.

    GRACE WHERE ARE YOU AND HOW COME YOU NEVER ANSWER EMAILS?? 🙁

    • DrGracePharmD-Gut_Goddess

      Thanks for your questions. What email used? Are you the Mike who has crazy gut experiences with microscopic amounts of fiber? We’ve cross referenced our records and your email is not located at all or in spam

      • New Greg

        I am having the same problem GutGoddess! I tried to connect my mortal soul to your divinity but there was no response! Perhaps my karmic knots are too heavy to be blessed by your reply! I pray to the gods of all microbiomes that you reply! gregoryr.haurylau@gmail.com

  • Curmudgeon

    Grace, do you recommend taking this continuously, or cyclically every few months … once/year?
